Always a great place to catch up with friends and have a couple of pints. Great selection of ale and the nibbles from the menu very tasty. Has a great small pub atmosphere that keeps us coming back.

I've been a few times, only for drinks rather than food, but it's a great little place. There's a great selection of single malt available, and good beers on tap.
